Housing Assistance


The Housing Options Team aims to prevent people becoming homeless by providing advice and assistance. An Officer may be able to offer advice on how to keep your current home, how to join our housing register, or give details of other organisations who may be of assistance to you.

If you are already homeless or about to become homeless, please visit our Homelessness page for more information.

Keyways (housing register)

The Borough Council of Wellingborough does not own any housing stock only the housing register. Keyways is a way of looking for housing association properties for rent or low cost home ownership in the borough. To apply to join the housing register applicants must meet criteria as set out in the Allocation Policy and Local Lettings Policies. Joining the housing register does not guarantee you will be housed within any timeframe.

Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse is any form of threatening behaviour or abuse between adults who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender. If you need help our domestic abuse leaflet gives advice and organisations that can help, the Voice offer emotional, practical support and information to both male and female victims of crime, including domestic abuse.

High-Rise Blocks - Safety Information

Living in a high-rise block doesn’t mean you are any more at risk from fire, but it does mean you need to consider your fire safety and the impact a fire in your home could have on other residents. Download the Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue Service safety guide on High-Rise Living.
